StandUp For Kids is committed to the help and rescue of homeless and street kids. We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives. We have been on the streets since January 1990 and continue to grow our organization to help America’s homeless youth.
Whatever your skills or time commitment, we can use your help! StandUp For Kids has been recognized by the White House, the U.S. Justice Department, Governor's Office for Children, Secretary of State for Colorado, American Express, AT&T and USWest and has been awarded the JCPenney Golden Rule Award. We tell homeless and street kids that we care about them and then go to the streets and prove it!
I know that these children need to have someone, or some type of help, to see that they have a chance to get started in life in the right direction. They need to know that there is somebody who cares about them and willing to give a out reached hand to help them make good decisions for their future.

It is an organization that helps to try and keep children safe while living on the streets. There are many run away children and without the help of an organization or someone these children can die. With the right people caring and helping they may go back home. They may not fall into the hands of the wrong people.
